The correct tyre pressure for your vehicle can be found in the manufacturer’s guide. The tyres should be checked before they have driven a long distance, when the tyres are still cold with the use of a reliable pressure gauge. This can be found at most service stations or can be purchased from a respectable car dealer. There are 3 parts to the answer, manufacturers guide, tyres are still cold, reliable pressure gauge.

There should be a minimum of 1.6 millimeters of tread depth, across the central three quarters of the breadth of the tyre around the entire circumference.
